Scotland vs Ireland live stream: how to watch Six Nations 2019 rugby online from anywhere

The Six Nations 2019 already has the pressure of this being the Rugby World Cup year too, so performances have to be at their peak. The Celtic clash between Ireland and Scotland should be a powerful one as pre-tournament favourites, Ireland, hope to spring back after an opening loss to England.

Great news though as you can watch every Six Nations game from practically anywhere and getting a Scotland vs Ireland live stream is no exception.

Ireland have started on the back foot after their defeat by England (32-20) in the opening Six Nations game for the side. But as the favourite at the start of this competition and with everything still to play for, Scotland are going to be firmly in the team’s crosshairs. With injuries plaguing the likes of CJ Stander, Devin Toner and Garry Ringrose, Ireland’s coach Joe Schmidt has had to make changes – Quinn Roux, Sean O’Brien and Rob Kearney all earning a recall.

Scotland is coming off a win after beating Italy (33-20) but since the Italians are the outsiders in this competition this likely hasn’t swelled the Scottish egos too much. Scotland’s prop Willem Nel and flanker Sam Skinner are both ruled out through injury.

The game itself is free to air in the UK, so you can tune in to a Scotland vs Ireland live stream for free if you’re there. For all your other viewing options, keep on reading.

New Galaxy S10 and S10E images reveal all about Samsung’s upcoming phones

With the February 20 launch for the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, and Galaxy S10E fast approaching, we haven’t been short on leaks and rumors to keep us going until the big day – and today there are more leaked images to pore over.

Courtesy of seasoned tipster Evan Blass, we now have full front and back renders of the standard Galaxy S10 flagship and the cheaper Galaxy S10E variant. You can see those triple-lens and dual-lens cameras, ultra-thin bezels, and those ‘punch hole’ cameras.

We also get confirmation that the fingerprint sensor is going to be embedded in the screen on both these models. There’s no Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus in this gallery, but we’ve previously seen some very revealing pictures of that model too.

  • Everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy S10 so far
  • How Apple is fighting back with the HomePod 2
  • The Huawei P30 is almost ready to take on Samsung

None of this is new information of course, and we’ve seen quite a few leaked renders already, but just in case you were in any doubt about what the upcoming Galaxy phones will look like, here you go.

What we know so far

Samsung won’t have much left to reveal on February 20: the phones are expected to carry either the Snapdragon 855 or the Exynos 9820 processor, depending on region, and anywhere up to 12GB of RAM for your multitasking needs.

A huge 1TB of storage is on the cards too. Previous Samsung phones have hit that mark with 512GB of internal storage and the option of a 512GB memory card, but it confirmed earlier this year that production has started on a 1TB storage chip.

What we might not get, at least not on February 20, is a 5G Galaxy S10. That might be delayed until later in the year, sources suggest, though Samsung could well give it a mention at its Unpacked event.

We’re counting down the days to Wednesday February 20 and we will of course bring you all the news as it happens right here. Don’t be surprised to see even more details of these phones leak out between then and now.

Amazon might be reconsidering its second headquarters in New York

After facing opposition from lawmakers and residents, Amazon might not built its second headquarters in New York after all.

Sources who are “familiar with the company’s thinking” spoke to The Washington Post on Friday, and said the e-commerce giant might reconsider its deal in the face of vocal opposition to the deal. 

Even if the deal falls through with New York, the deal with Virginia would still stand. 

  • Trump could ban Chinese 5G technology on US networks
  • Microsoft just signed Internet Explorer’s death sentence
  • Facebook told to limit data collection on its users

“The question is whether it’s worth it if the politicians in New York don’t want the project, especially with how people in Virginia have been so welcoming,” a source familiar with the matter told the Post.

The blowback began after an anti-Amazon rally that was held the day after the deal was announced and has been a point of contention at local town halls, according to Vox.  

Don’t celebrate / mourn the loss of Amazon just yet 

While the Post’s report cited two people who were familiar with the matter, a third has spoken to The New York Times’ City Hall reporter and said that there were no plans to abandon ship just yet.

To that end, Amazon has been issuing statements to media outlets telling them that the company has no plans to remove themselves from the deal and said “Whether it’s building a pipeline of local jobs through workforce training or funding computer science classes for thousands of New York City students, we are working hard to demonstrate what kind of neighbor we will be.”

Amazon is set to start construction on its second headquarters in 2020… as long as the company decides to stick with its original plans.
